Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt

became just another provincial town, known mostly for University of Marburg. It became a virtual backwater for two centuries after the Thirty Years' War, 1618–1648, when it was fought over by Hessen-Darmstadt (Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt) and Landgraviate of Hessen-Kassel.

Gold Cup Official Site a sailing event which is a key stage of the World Match Racing Tour, one of only three sailing championships to be sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) International Sailing Federation Site with 'Special Event' status. The Argo Cup brings the world's best match-racing sailors (including world champions and Olympic sailors) to Bermuda for 5 days of one-on-one 'match racing'. Points accrued during the event contribute to the World Match Racing Tour and ultimately a chance to race in the final event, the Monsoon Cup in Malaysia. The winner of that is crowned ISAF World Match Racing Champion. Unlike many water-based sports, which occur to far out to view from shore, 'match racing' is a great spectator sport. The race takes place only 15m from the shore, and spectators can see the heart of the action. The history of the modern Bermuda Gold Cup event dates back to the very beginning of the match racing style of sailing. The first 'match race' in a one-design racing yacht i.e. technically identical boats, was the '''King Edward VII Gold Cup''' '''VSB-TV''' is the NBC television affiliate for Hamilton (Hamilton, Bermuda), Bermuda.

Lauder, Chairman Adrian Sârbu, CEO & President David Sach, CFO landlord location Langton Hill, Hamilton (Hamilton, Bermuda), Pembroke (Pembroke Parish, Bermuda) address '''Government House''' is the official residence of the Governor of Bermuda. It is located on Langton Hill, overlooking the North Shore in Hamilton (Hamilton, Bermuda), Pembroke (Pembroke Parish, Bermuda). Government House is also the official residence of the Bermudan head of state (currently Queen Elizabeth II) when staying in Bermuda. This was only one of the changes made in the 1960s, largely as a result of the civil rights movement. A constitution was introduced which made Bermuda's parliamentary system more like the Westminster system. Political parties were legalised, and the system of a majority Government, from which a Premier was appointed and the Cabinet Ministers were drawn, and a minority Opposition was adopted. The Senate was created to perform a function akin to that of the House of Lords, in London, although its members were appointed, rather than being hereditary, noble peers. The system of suffrage, by which the members of the lower house were elected, and which, as in Britain, had historically been limited to male landowners, was finally extended to all adults: universal adult suffrage (Universal suffrage). Although non-white males had not been specifically banned from either voting or standing for election, the land-owning requirement had effectively barred all but a few from voting. When the numbers of non-white land owners had increased, a minimum property value was added. The first non-white to stand for election was schoolmaster Augustus Swan, who owned two houses and dry goods stores in Hamilton (Hamilton, Bermuda) and Flatts (Flatts Village, Bermuda). He was part of a coalition that pledged black support for white candidates Samuel Nash, Ambrose Gosling and RJP Darrell, in exchange for white support of Swan, but the plan failed and none of these candidates won a seat. The first non-white person to actually gain a seat in the House of Assembly was William Henry Thomas Joell, elected MCP for Pembroke (Pembroke Parish, Bermuda) in May, 1883, and who died in 1886 while still holding his seat. He was replaced by John Henry Thomas Jackson, who was also non-white. Bermuda's women were denied the vote, and the ability to stand for election, entirely until 1944. rowspan "2" CARIFTA Games (U-20) (2004 CARIFTA Games) rowspan "2" Hamilton (Hamilton, Bermuda), Bermuda bgcolor gold 1st CARIFTA Games Hamilton (Hamilton, Bermuda), Bermuda style "background:gold;" 1st Dissatisfaction with the quality of this part-time Constabulary led to the formation of the Bermuda Police Force under the Police Establishment Act, 1879.
